Remember when Wendy Williams came on to her television show to assure that she and husband Kevin Hunter were not planning to split. “Not in this lifetime,” she told her cheering audience.
But a week later, the famous couple shocked the world with news of their divorce, and the television show even confirmed it later after she was spotted without her wedding ring.
As if their separation didn’t create enough controversy, the couple’s son was recently arrested after allegedly assaulting his own father.
As goes for any other powerful couple, Wendy and Kevin’s divorce is not going to be easy or quick. After all, the two share businesses, assets, and even a child together.
Like everything else that they own, their joint charity, the Hunter’s Foundation, is at stake too. Will the foundation gets dissolve following their breakup? Here’s Kevin’s surprising answer.
According to Kevin Hunter, he insists the philanthropic works in his foundation will continue despite his recent separation with estranged wife, Wendy Williams.
Even if their co-founded organization dissolves as a result of the divorce, Kevin will continue its legacy and launch a new charity organization to save its benefactors.
According to Hunter, their charity has already helped thousands of patients to recover from drug addiction and substance abuse and he’ll continue working for this noble cause even if it means that he has to do it alone.
The Hunter Foundation might end soon, but Hunter reassures his beneficiaries that he’ll return to launch a new charity soon.
Taking a Hiatus
While Hunter didn’t disclose more details about his new charity, he did say the existing foundation, as well as the substance abuse hotline he launched with his ex-wife, will still remain operational. Williams, on the other hand, hasn’t addressed the fate of her charity publically yet.
Hunter announced their resource hotline numbered 888-5HUNTER, in partnership with TRUST, will go on hiatus starting May 31, 2019. So he encourages patients who are in need of urgent treatments to call before 31st.
Despite their short launching, Hunter is proud to say they already received 13,000 phone calls and have helped over 900 patients who suffered from substance abuse.
Commitments and Promises
Hunter also adds he’s currently working with other organizations to keep the hotline open and available to all. He believes their mission should continue as it keeps changing the lives of their patients for the better.
Hopefully, he’ll have more good news next week, either in saying he’ll extend the hotline services, or he’ll share more details about his new foundation.
Meanwhile, Wendy Williams says she remains devoted to helping patients who struggle with substance abuse. Aside from that, the renowned TV host says she’ll also start focusing on supporting other foundations through investments and donations.
While Williams personally didn’t want to dissolve The Hunter Foundation, sources reveal she felt compelled to do so. According to the TV host, she didn’t want to be associated with her ex-husband any longer, so she had no choice but to end the foundation. But that doesn’t mean she’s done helping other people, though.
